As part of the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts’s Family Saturday for May, South Side Projections is showing a fun program of animated films based on folktales and myths from around the world.

Learn how the moon came to be in the sky in the Ashanti story Anansi the Spider (1969, 10 min.), how the spirit of the sun came to the Pueblo people in Arrow to the Sun (1972, 12 min.), how a brave boy solved the problem of a frightening dragon in the Japanese tale The Dragon’s Tears (1962, 6 min.), what happened when a pesky blue jay stole the sun in the First Nations story The Hoarder (1969, 8 min.), and who won when a bunch of monkeys fought over the moon in the Chinese tale Monkeys Fish the Moon (1983, 11 min.).

(Description from South Side Projections)

All films come from Chicago Film Archives’ Chicago Public Library Collection.
